. enough already. >> this is a matter maybe for the united nations security council. jennings had his human rights violated. for the nfl to stand up and say the call should stand, we have eyes. it's like i don't want to equate this to ahmadinejad saying in front of the u.n. saying iran's nuclear intentions are peaceful but there's a credibility gap here. >> going to believe me or your lying eyes, right, chris? >> it's a remarkable thing because i think if you look at products that have been developed from a public relations perspective over the last few decades none has been better developed than the nfl and his remark may be apple but it is a remarkable how it's grown into the dominant sport in this country a money making perspective. i just think at some point here they have to say, this is a bad pshg r move and cut a deal. >> let's hope before the weekend. thank you very much. thank you, chris cizilla, see you later, jeff goldberg, thank you very much. joining me in new york, dan senor, senior adviser to the romney campaign. you were watching the game. what do you think? >> watched it wi
. under the leadership of president obama and the international community, the united nations has put them under some of the strongest sanctions today. oil exports have been correct. the iranian economy has been hit hard. it does have an effect on the economy. we must face the truth. sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear nucleare on iran's weapons program. [applause] red lines do not lead to war. they prevent war. look at nato's charter. it made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all. new's redlined helps keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century -- red lines have helped keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century. and help preserve the peace for decades. it is the failure to place red lines that has often invited aggression. if it were dr
-qaeda, libya, and the statements by the administration, go to what's happening at the united nations. >> uh-huh. lou: the president declines any bilateral meeting with any world leader this week. he gives a speech. will be interesting to hear your take on. he moves off to campaign while morsi and ahmadinejad basically talk about embracing the world and creating a new architecture for world government. what do you make of that? >> that's scary, isn't it. the leader of the free world, who, a year ago, was talking about the world that he envisioned, the great democracy is now at the united nations cringing to talk about the murder of the american diplomats, that it's not our fault, but a reaction to a youtube video. i mean, where was president obama? he didn't sound like a great world leader, but on the other hand, you have the new president of egypt, and what did he talk about? he talked about a new policy towards the middle east. he talked about egypt having a bigger role in the world, and then there was ahmadinejad of iran. that's his swan song. he's not addressing the united nation, and he
like this one. president obama going up to new york for the united nations but yesterday he sat down with the women on the view but held zero one on one meetings with foreign dignitaries. was that a case of the right priorities for the president's schedule or was it a big mistake? we all tackle that and a whole lot more here on the full court press. first, let's start out with the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. mitt romney joins paul ryan on a bus tour through ohio as part of an effort to refocus his campaign message. ryan kicked off a three-day tour with an event in lima and they'll campaign together in central ohio. romney wraps it up tuesday with an event in cleveland. ohio is perhaps the most critical swing state with 18 electoral votes. romney losing ohio would mean he has no shot at the white house. that does follow suit with history. no republican candidate has ever become president without carrying ohio. recent poll
peaceful nuclear power. but one of the purposes of the united nations is to see we harness that power for peace. make no mistake, nuclear -- is no at challenge that can be contained that would threaten the elimination of israel, the security of the nations and the security of the global economy. it risk triggering a nuclear arms race in the region and the unraveling of the nonproliferation treaty. that's why a coalition of the countries is holding the iranian government accountable. and that's why we must do what -- >> host: how about the posture and the words any messages you heard from the president. and speak about the arc of recent history here. it wasn't too long when you were folks were dealing with the issue as well. go ahead. >> guest: thank you. i thought it was an interesting reference that the president made to iron in the speech with the u.n. yesterday. i thought he was talking directly to the iranian government and to the iranian people to get the meth age i cross that the united states has a lot of international backing. most of the countries are supporting us not the ir
. if the united nations is aoptics, bad optics. the leader who has the goal of the destruction of israel is speaking on the holy day. this is not an accident but iranian wanted it that way, and it is not an accident, rubbing salt in the wound. more troubling to u.n. watcher who says it is not so much the u.n. not moving the speech, maybe why the white house did not try or care. very good do have you, professor. what do you make of the timing? accidental? weird? deliberate? >>guest: this is a guy who has dedicated his time in office to antisemetism, to the destruction of the state of israel. he obviously is happy with the opportunity to speak on the holiest day of the jewish calendar. it suits him. the question is, why does it suit us? what are we doing abouting this to happen? >>neil: you argue because it is the united nations does not mean you let every kook in the country. >>guest: there is a headquarters agreement the we have an obligation to allow transit to and from the headquarters district as it is called on first avenue in new york city. there is also another part of the headquar
, wednesday. the platform will be taken at the united nations general assembly. my question escapes what actions can we be taking similar to canada shedding their embassy, what can the united states do with regard to the international court of justice? there is talk right now about recognizing the fact that he is on a genocidal task. his calls are genocidal. that is against a member nation of the united nations. how can we as america do something to ensure iran is thrown out of the united nations? he cannot be given platforms like this. he is now the secretary for the mam for the next three years. >> how can the united states get iran thrown out? do you realize iran just held a meeting with 40 countries? i thought it was 40. even more important, 120. you are suggesting the president should organize an assembly to throw iran out? listen, you'll forgive me, but it is ridiculous. we pay dues but we do not decide how countries will vote. thank god none of the votes in the assembly are mandatory in terms of being carried out. that has to be done through the security council, where we have a v
work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world in terms of explaining what happened. virtually everything she said was wrong. the administration is trying to cover it up saying she was given the best information she had available at the time. they knew there was a lot of information they didn't have. they knew there was a large amount at the very least essentialial evidence showing it was a terrorist attack

at the united nations general assembly. that will happen at 10:00 eastern. big moment for the president because critics have been saying he should have been more focused on the dramatic events that have been unfolding including the murder of four americans at our consulate in libya. governor romney hitting the president on the campaign trail for referring to the turmoil going on there as bumps in the road. >> there are extraordinary events going on in the middle east. considering those events either one of them or all of them collectively as bumps in the road shows a person who has very different perspective about world affairs than the perspective i have. i think this is time for america to exert leadership. this is not something we're doing in the middle east. frankly the course we're on domestically left so many people behind. i think we have to take a very different course than the course that has been followed last four years. bill: we're going to take this course. team fox coverage. chief political correspondent carl cameron. carl, i want to start with you, romney and the president both s
with this fox news alert of the president obama just wrapping up his address to the united nations general assembly. the president challenging the international community to confront the causes of violence erupting across the muslim world and delivering a stern warning to iran saying the united states will do what it must do to prevent tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. we're going to have reaction to the president's u.n. address coming up in just a moment. first though, brand new stories and breaking news. >> the deadly west nile virus outbreak across our country is now getting worse. with one state hit very hard, the new efforts to stop the virus right in its tracks. >>> wild weather killer floods and mudslides are forcing more than a million folks out of their homes. we're live with that story. >>> plus a new first for the mars rover as its robotic arm reaches out to touch a huge rock on the planet. now the rover on the move again. where it is headed next and why the trip is making history. it is all "happening now.". jamie: first back to our top story, violence in the middle east
you hear what he said to the united nations and why the american delegation may even show up for his remarks. want to get to it. sdmrimplts if you had any doubts about how important ohio is in this presidential race, you got to consider this. you've got both the president and mitt romney there both right now. their eths set to begin at the same time. just minutes away. the president, he is holding a rally. this is in bowling green. romney is about 130 miles away. he is in bedford heights. we'll dip into both of those event wrshz we want to bring in jim accosta in who is covering the romney campaign. jim, we have some information. we know that polls are actually showing the president is leading romney in ohio. this is the cnn poll of polls. average of four most recent surveys. the president ahead, 55-41%. why do you think that is so significant right now? >> he has more than 40 days to go before this election, but keep in mind that the presidential debates, a series of presidential debates in that vice presidential debate gets going next week. so he doesn't have a whole lot of time on
to issue any strong condemnation of the protest, instead called on the united nations to lead a charge to make illegal for anyone, anywhere including here in the united states, to insult the prophet muhammad. listen to this. >> you can never condone violence. the international community must not become silent observer and should criminalize such attacks that destroy the peace of the world and endanger the world security by misusing freedom of expression. >> reporter: once again, bill, that is the leader of one of our supposed allies, calling on the u.n. to pass laws that would trump the united states constitution. bill? bill: jonathan, thanks. we'll be back in touch when there are headlines today as expected. jonathan hunt at the u.n.. martha: take a look at the u.s. economy this morning. there is a new report that has some not very good news on this. families are seeing a lot less money in their paychecks according to this new report. it finds the median household income fell by 1.1% to under $51,000 last month. you take a look at the chart on this since 2009 and it is not a pretty pi
it suit us? what are we doing abouting this to happen? >>neil: you argue because it is the united nations does not mean you let every kook in the country. >>guest: there is a headquarters agreement the we have an obligation to allow transit to and from the headquarters district as it is called on first avenue in new york city. there is also another part of the headquarters agreement. that says there shall not be, it will be prohibited, racial and religious discrimination, in the headquarters district. ahmadinejad is a racist in chief. that is what he does best. not only is everything that comes from his mouth a violation of the charter, he clearly has dedicated himself to the wiping off a u.n. member to its total destruction. he is in violation of the charter. we could have used the headquarter agreement to keep him out. >>neil: but the u.n., only in the united nations can the security council, some of the members are rotated, where iran could be a member and police itself. how does that happen? does the u.n. mock itself with this type of open policy? >>guest: we have had syria on the sec
